Madonna fan ordered to stay away

A fan arrested while proclaiming his love for Madonna near her New York apartment has been told to stay at least 10 blocks away

A fan who was arrested while proclaiming his love for Madonna near her New York City apartment has been told to stay at least 10 blocks away.

A judge made that a condition as he set bail at $20,000 for Robert Linhart.

The 59-year-old retired firefighter was arrested last month.

Authorities said he scrawled messages of adoration for the Crazy for You and Material Girl singer outside her apartment building near Manhattan's Central Park.

Linhart's lawyer said the messages weren't threatening - just signs of being a fan.

A grand jury declined to indict Linhart on graffiti charges.

He pleaded not guilty to resisting arrest and weapons possession. Authorities said he had a knife and ice pick.
